I don’t eat dairy and I’m worried that I am not getting enough calcium. Should I take Extra Bonecare Forte?
If you don’t eat many calcium containing foods daily (dairy, green vegetables and sesame seeds/tahini) you may be at risk of calcium insufficiency and in need of a calcium supplement, particularly if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or of advancing age, when calcium demand is higher. Extra Bonecare Forte provides 250.16mg of total calcium per tablet, allowing you to adjust how many tablets you take to what you actually need depending on your dietary intake.
